My list is really similar to Scott's actually.  I think I'd put Cliegg in there (instead of Bespin Guard) and Tzizvvt (instead of Lars family droid).

1.  Kenner Deco Greedo
2.  Kenner Deco Walrusman
3.  Kenner Deco Hammerhead
4.  Sim Aloo
5.  Cliegg Lars
6.  Bannis Keeg
7.  Solomahal
8.  Tzizvvt
9.  Fozec
10. Tonnika Sisters

Huh.  7/10 from ANH Cantina.  I guess that means I really, really, really wanted them to finish anyone/everyone from Mos Eisley (and then some, in the case of the Kenner-style ones).  :P

62
I always wanted a kind of "Mad Max" Rebel Speeder that was basically an armor plated civilian vehicle...  kinda like you'd see on the news these days anymore in the middle east

I have mine parked on my Tatoooine table / streets of Mos Eisley dio as filler - fits in great there. ;)

TRU has not announced their 2016 SDCC exclusives yet, so it may be a little bit longer before we know where this is ending up.

And by "a little bit longer" I guess I meant today.  Confirmed as a TRU SDCC exclusive that will be availble online (toysrus.com) and at the Entertainment Earth Booth(#2343) at SDCC.

Star Wars The Black Series Astromech Droid 3-Pk.



Build your Star Wars collection with the Astromech Droid 3-Pack from The Black Series! This collectable showcase of the heroic droids from the Battle of Yavin features exquisite craftsmanship, multiple points of articulation and premium detail that only The Black Series from Hasbro and Star Wars can offer!

I swear that Sand Speeder had to be in the film in some capacity to get a MM and a full size vehicle haha.
There's a scene at the trading post on Jakku where that speeder passes across the screen way in the back of the shot and then I'm pretty sure we never see it again.
See I thought that too...  I wonder if it ever played any other part?

I don't remember it from the movie, but I remember seeing something like it in the facebook 360 video.

ILM/LFL must have done up some initial CGI for it and then didn't use it for much...  poor Hasbro screwed again. :P

Bandai's all masked guys so far with the kits

You mean Bandai's model group is all masked guys so far.  Bandai's action figure group, Tamashii Nations, is responsible for the S.H.Figuarts stuff.  So Bandai's got plenty of killer human heads out there too.  ;)

there's too many iconic OT characters they still need to trawl out and I don't think we can take anything for granted anymore with the scattershot, glacial pace of releases they seem to prefer.

You mean like how we're nearly three and a half years into the 6" line and they are finally getting around to ANH Ben Kenobi?  Or how they still haven't made a single Lando or C-3PO figure yet?  Glacial indeed.

I guess you need to hope that more OT characters make the "top 6" choices for round 2 (or Top 7, if they have to put a female in there to appease the masses like they did with Sabine last year :-X).  From last year's poll, four of the seven Round 2 finalists ended up with figures (Revan, Sabine, Ben, Snowtrooper). 


I don't get some of the hysteria I've read this morning elsewhere about this. I mean, who thought it was anything other than a poll?

Maybe some of those sites shouldn't have been running around for the past two weeks saying, "OMG you guys - big Hasbro announcement coming!!" every few days.   :-X

Eh, either way, there was always going to be a segmet of fandom that reacted poorly to the new poll news I suppose.

67
All signs still point to this:

What if this set isn't the Hasbro SDCC exclusive, but possibly the TRU SDCC exclusive (like the awesome 6" Han vs Greedo pack they did once upon a time or the mega-3.75" box sets they've done the past few years)?

TRU has not announced their 2016 SDCC exclusives yet, so it may be a little bit longer before we know where this is ending up.

Please use this thread for discussion on the 2016 Black Series 6" fan choice poll and/or the voting so we can keep the other thread nice and tidy (to make it easier to count votes) - thanks!

69
For the last few years we have run an informal poll with your 10 most wanted characters from the current Star Wars Films. Here's how it works: You submit your Wish List for your top ten Black Series 6" figures by posting them here, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases and we'll tally the votes.   Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

PLEASE NOTE: All STAR WARS characters are eligible for the poll, EXCEPT characters from ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY.  If you have any questions about whether a character would or would not be eligible, please let us know and we'll do our best to get you an answer.

Also note: Any characters from the STAR WARS REBELS or STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS animated series would be sculpted in the realistic style of the STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES line.

Final note: Votes only accepted from forum users registered before June 30, 2016 (sorry, ballot stuffers!)


Lists are due to Hasbro on Monday, July 11th (1pm ET), so get cracking as the voting will close that morning to give us time to compile the JediDefender Top Six, which will help determine the finalist for Round 2 voting at StarWars.com (date TBD).

edit:  please post only your top ten lists here - to discuss the poll, your votes, or other people's votes please use this thread. Thanks! :)

I had a couple other things on my EE wishlist come in-stock over the past week, so I put together a $80 order with Jon and Ghost included. 

Looking forward to checking them out.

Got Jon and Ghost today.  Ghost has 5 POA (neck, 4 legs) and Jon has 9 POA (ball neck, 2x shoulders, 2x elbows, 2x legs, 2x knees).  No ball joints on elbows or knees, but the ball join head is nice.  Would make for some nice easy customs if you want more Crows to guard your wall or whatever.  The samples I got are pretty nice deco wise. 

It's a really nice middle of the road figure.  Good sculpt, decent articulation, good deco - Pretty decent value for just $10 when compared to a lot of other stuff out there.  I think I will eventually pick up Tormund, Sam, and Ygrette.   Maybe go for the White Walkers too, maybe not.  Def going to skip backgrounders like Styr and Rattleshirt though.   Hope they can keep it going. I look forward to seeing what they do for Wave/Series 2.

it would be nice if that melted Vader helmet was included in the eventual regular release

If they have to keep finding ways to get collectors to rebuy Kylo again and again over the next few years, I'd say it's a safe bet it will eventually find it's way to another 6" Kylo offering. :P

Staal, Stalock, Stewart so far for my club. 

I guess the Wild only had time to study the "St" portion of the Free Agent handbook. :P


Hedman is due up soon I believe, but a year or two down the road.

Sounds like he's signed an extension today = 8yr, $7.875M AAV.   :o

edit:
And now it sounds like Andrei Vasilevskiy is extending too - 3yrs @ $3.5M AAV.  So now is it even more likely Bishop ends up being the part that's moved to make room for Palat, Johnson, Drouin, & Kucherov?

On Tampa though I think they're headed towards Hawk-style cap hell.  They simply can't afford to retain all their players under the cap.  Way too many good players that will be getting better salaries coming out of their ELCs.  Palat, Johnson, Drouin, Bishop, Kucherov.  Not all are due this year but in the next year or two a lot of guys are going to be looking to be paid and I think you start to see Chicago-style dumping of excellent players going on.  Hedman is due up soon I believe, but a year or two down the road.  That's kind of crazy.  Some guys are going to have to go and I don't think anyone aside from Stamkos (and probably Hedman) is guaranteed to stay.  Bishop will likely end up out, but a couple of skaters too. 

This is where we see how mych Stevie Y learned from the Bowmans and Holland over the years.  Yzerman already won a GM of the year award and he held firm on both Drouin and Stamkos and got wins.

Getting Stamkos to agree to 8.5 AAV in Florida (where other teams would have had to go as much as $10m AAV to get the same cash thanks to tax breaks) was a big win.  If Yzerman can keep selling the "tax free" discount angle to get some of those guys to take less, he'll be better off.

But you're right - can't see them keeping everyone.  Maybe they do end up trading Drouin or Johnson to make some cap room... even Bishop could go if they have to make room.


We aren't nearly as good as Tampa but we may run into similar issues as well. 

You and everyone else if you guys can't get that Loonie turned around. :P
